Starting  Your Pellet Unit

Auto-Start procedure

Caution - Never use gasoline, lantern fuel, charcoal lighter fluid, diesel fuel, or any other flammable liquid to start the fire. Use of flammable liquid with this unit can be dangerous and may damage the unit, voiding the warranty.


When the "ON" button is pressed from a cold start, the unit is in "Start-Up" (after 3 seconds, there will be an "S U" in the Heat Range and Blower Speed windows to verify this).

While in this mode, the unit has a preset heat range and will remain in this mode for 20 minutes to prevent the unit from over-firing. During this start-up period you can set the Control Board at the setting you desire; after the start-up is complete, the unit will run at the user setting. If for some reason the unit does not come on after pressing the "ON" button, the power cord can be disconnected for approximately three minutes. After this time, the Control Board can be re-connected to the power source and you may press the "ON" button again.

 First fire

Adjust the "Heat Range" to a "5" setting and allow the stove to burn in this manner for at least three (3) hours.

This will allow the unit to "cure out" as the paint and the oils from the manufacturing process burn off. We recommend you open doors and windows in your dwelling during this process. Subsequent Cold Starts: In a cold start situation, the unit should be operated at a "5" setting until the room air blower begins to operate.

NOTE: The start-up cycle for  the Auto-Start Igniter is 13 minutes. The startup mode for the unit will last 20 minutes

Press the "ON" button only once on start-up. Pressing the "ON" button a second time during the start-up cycle will cause the start-up cycle to begin again.

If the unit does not start after repeated attempts, the unit can be manually started with an approved for pellet stove starter material such as gel or wood chips.
